Long time no soap! I say, as if I didn't make this soap two weeks ago and not made any since
I've been taking a short break partially because I ran out of shea butter and ordered some from WSP along with some FOs, Kaolin, and some mango butter since that was on sale! But also I've been hard at work on my MP soaps for my online shop and those take priority over the mad science experiments.
Anyway, on to this soap. After I got that nasty colored extra batter from Batch #15, I decided to shred it all down and then mix it in with my other blue and green soap scraps to do a ciaglia method soap. I wanted to use as much as possible, so I broke out my normal mold for the first time! I also added some sea clay, some leftover green tea rice water from Batch #8, and a healthy dose of gold mica.
Batch #16 - 7 Oil Blend with Green Tea Infused Rice Water
I did, in fact, have FOUR different colorants but somehow two ended up the same color
With how weirdly colored my batter was due to the soap scraps, the sea clay, and the lye solution, I didn't notice until it was too late. All good! At least it's a beautiful green.
The speckling of the ciaglia method is so fun. I especially love seeing the tiny bits of neon green from my Batch #5 & #6.
